Printmaking:
A wonderful opportunity to learn the fascinating world of printmaking. Whether it’s all-new, or you have the experience, we are offering Sunday afternoon open studio time to work on your own projects in the company of experienced and highly acclaimed printmakers. Alanna Baird and/or Ann Manuel will be on hand to advise, encourage and assist. Each month’s block of 4 sessions will be a look at a different technique of printmaking.
These sessions in our beautiful and bright renovated print studio will be relaxed and welcoming. Whether you want to produce your own cards, limited edition artworks, or simply learn new skills and express your creativity, this is the place to be!

Pottery:
This Social Sunday is an open studio where you can mingle, share ideas, and work on your independent projects. An experienced ceramicist, Travis Melanson, is our studio technician. The first week will include a short tutorial to introduce you to the studio and the materials available for you to use. The requirement is that you have basic knowledge of throwing pottery or some experience in working with clay.
You can be a beginner with basic knowledge or an experienced artist. Each Studio Social has appointed an experienced artist as a studio technician to help you with equipment, answer questions about our studios and materials will be available to you.

Sensational Sauerkraut with Anne Hopkins

Online Event Anywhere you can connect to the internet, ME

Join Anne Hopkins and friends in your home kitchen for EAC’s next workshop offering: an afternoon of learning to create the digestive ‘wonder food,’ sauerkraut. The foodcraft class will take place from 1:30-3 pm, Sunday, January 31, via Zoom. 

Participants will receive a PDF of Anne’s sauerkraut-making pamphlet when they register for the session, with inspiration, ingredients list and tools to gather. They’ll then spend the session prepping cabbage and other vegetables with Anne, who’ll demonstrate the process, and then talk through the art of fermentation. Necessary supplies include: head cabbage, salt (sea salt preferred), large mixing bowl, cutting board and knife, quart or half gallon jar with (plastic) lid and dark towel. Optional supplies include: carrots, onions, hot pepper, caraway seeds, garlic, ginger and grater.  

Anne has been succeeding at making krauts for a dozen years (and failing for fifteen) so they will be able to guide all through the pitfalls and perks of this living food. Participants will learn to DIY and enjoy this wonder food at home this winter. 

Please register by emailing alison@eastportartscenter.org, by Saturday, January 30. Participants will receive their Zoom invitation on the 30th for the following day’s session. Funding for this free workshop has been provided by Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
